Muttville‘s mission is to provide rescue, foster, adoption, and hospice for senior dogs, and support and education for the people that love them. Through associations with shelters and other animal organizations, Muttville finds senior dogs that have been given up and are not likely to find adopted homes. Through outreach and networking, Muttville finds suitable new homes for these dogs. Muttville has its own cage-free facility, housing newly rescued senior dogs while they await to be matched with foster homes.



The Marin Humane Society offers refuge, rehabilitation, and support services to more than 10,000 domestic animals and wildlife each year through a myriad of community services, including adoptions, foster care, behavior and training, humane education, pet assistance for people in need, lost-and-found pet services, low-cost clinics, and more. They are a local, independent organization and are not a chapter or affiliate of any national organization.



The Peninsula Humane Society (PHS/SPCA) is a private, independent, non-profit, and their scope of services goes beyond that of a so-called no-kill, or limited admission, facility. As an open-door shelter, PHS/SPCA accepts all animals brought to them, regardless of age, breed or size, and they have rehomed 100% of the healthy dogs and cats in their care since 2003 and promise to do this going forward.
